Day 17 – Enjoying the Journey


One of my favorite Christian speakers is Joyce Meyer.  She has a saying which goes like this:

“I may not be where I should be, but thank God I am not where I used to be.  I’m okay and I’m on my way!”

Today was “one of those days”.

You know….The minute you walk into work, everything starts and not one at a time….All at once.

During times like that, I get overwhelmed and it seems like I can hear every word of every conversation, every laugh, every sneeze…well, you get the picture!

I really just wanted to find a quiet place and try to figure out my stuff. But…..that was not happening.

Enough about the day!

I am going to take Zig Ziglar’s advice and speak of positive things.

As of today, I am down 21 pounds.


I am also down 1 pants size and have a whole closet I will soon be shopping in!

Unfortunately, today was not a good food day.  I did get two massive servings of my Morning Cocktail,(green juice) but after that, I only got 1 serving of almonds and maybe 20 ounces of water.

Dinner wasn’t until 7:30! 

The good news is I ate mostly vegetables for dinner and a 3 ounce serving of chicken breast. 

So, I may not lose any weight today but I did something today that I didn’t used to do.

In the past, I would have REACTED to the stress at work and told myself it was okay to go and get some fast food that would, for a moment, provide some comfort.

I also would have allowed myself to become really become stressed….so much so that I would feel bad physically. 


I got stressed out, but I didn’t go for fast food.  Further, I don’t hurt now and didn’t hurt while it was happening.

Through the process of this reboot, I am physically feeling better and with that my emotions are coming more in line with where they should be.

So, like Joyce says….Today wasn’t perfect and yes, I am now behind on some other things….But, I’m  okay and I’m on my way! 

Journey On!!!!
